Welcome for Communities First report

July 25th 2017

The Bevan Foundation has welcomed Equality, Local Government and Communities Committee’s report on Communities First.

The Bevan Foundation has welcomed the recommendations of the Equality, Local Government and Communities Committee’s report on Communities First, published on 25th July 2017.  In particular it welcomes the Committee’s inclusion of the Bevan Foundation and Joseph Rowntree Foundation’s proposals to reduce poverty through a whole government strategy for reducing costs and raising incomes, rather than its current focus on employability, early years and empowerment.

The Bevan Foundation also welcome’s the Committee’s adoption of other Bevan Foundation proposals including:

  • the recommendation that the Welsh Government work with the Bevan Foundation and Joseph Rowntree Foundation on a dashboard of indicators,
  • the recommendation that the Welsh Government explore further the role of assets in generating income and wealth,
  • the comment that the Welsh Government needs to provide a robust framework for local action.

Director of the Bevan Foundation, Victoria Winckler, said:

We were delighted that the Equality, Local Government and Communities Committee has listened carefully to our written and oral evidence and included so many of ideas in its recommendations. The Committee’s inquiries into poverty are vitally important, and we hope that the Welsh Government heed the Committee’s recommendations. We look forward to working with the Welsh Government and the Committee in taking them forward.
